small peppers

mulchwoman(metuchen,nj)June 30, 2010


My peppers seem very small this year, and very slow growing. The plants are healthy and well leaved. There are peppers on them, but quite small and seem to be growing slowly. Maybe I'm just impatient.

Any suggestions?

My peppers are in the same condition. I bought my green, yellow and cubanelle peppers all at the same place and many had peppers on the plants. I planted them in my garden but no new flowers appeared. The weather is warm enough. Could the supplier of pepper plants forced the formation of the fruit?

I don't think thats the case with me. There were no peppers or flowers on the plants when I bought them. Yesterday I took the two little ones off, in hopes it will force the plant to put out more blossoms and fruit. There are a couple of blossom buds there now.
